As with many other places in the US it's been snowing here these past few days. I really want to get out to the mountains for some video but a few flakes falling from the sky have kept me from flying. Snow is water and water and electronics don't mix. I don't condone flying with any snow in the air it's possible that a few flakes might be around or while flying that the Phantom might run across a few. Here is a thought I'd like to put out for discussion... placing tape over the vents on the side of the Phantom. Cover up all but a small area. Keep in mind that it's going to be freezing or close to freezing temps anyway so I don't think heat is an issue in the winter time. The base of the motors are still exposed though but the propellers might "help" protect that area a little. What I'm looking for is any edge I can get to protect the Phantom and if there are no draw backs... why not.
